7:00am
rare and powerful twisters tear through the great lakes. destroying more than 100 homes. just miles from downtown detroit. >> holy crap, look how big it is! cameras are rolling as they ravaged entire neighborhoods. caught on tape, a 3-year-old toddler thrown off this wild carnival ride. with hundreds looking on. look at the moment she came loose and fell. she's okay, but what was she doing there in the first place? guilty in the day care murder trial. the man who claimed angels and daemons drove him to kill called a fake in open court. the jury sending him to prison. why his alleged love is still under fire. nancy grace weighs in. and america's sweetheart.
7:01am
superstar, julia roberts, here in times square dishing about who she's obsessed with, her new role and how she's found her own happily ever after. >> oh, george, good morning, america. well -- hello, everyone. happy friday. we have a lot to get to today including the tornadoes. look at this in michigan. touching down there. this is the farthest north a twister has hit michigan this early in the season. we saw whole blocks of homes, look at that right there, whole blocks of homes torn up. >> sam said to see this in mid march is so incredibly rare. we'll have the latest on the american soldier accused of shooting so many civilians in afghanistan. what his new lawyer says is the real story behind this. he could be named today, once he is formally charged.
7:02am
>> he just hired that lawyer. talked to the family members already. also, it's friday. so we're going to have a little fun as well. let's have a look at a little eye candy there, jennifer lopez. great new dress right there. she's opening up, telling us how she really feels about her split with marc anthony. why she's proud and how they're handling it right now. and we look forward to your conversation with julia roberts. we begin with the extremely rare and destructive twisters outside of detroit. abc's ginger zee is live in dexter, michigan, where so many homes we see there were destroyed. ginger. >> reporter: there were three tornadoes reported in eastern michigan yesterday. the one that devastated the home behind me and completely leveled the house next door has left hundreds in this neighborhood alone displaced. this is some of the earliest tornado action we've ever seen this far north on record and it was all caught on tape. [ siren blaring ] hear that? it's the warning before a possible tornado in monroe county, michigan.
7:03am
>> oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh. oh, my, gosh. >> reporter: don't let the nervous laughter fool you. in dexter, michigan, matthew was golfing with friends when they looked up and saw this. >> through the trees! >> reporter: he says he was scared but managed to capture a bit of the fury. >> it started hailing. the wind was so loud. as it got closer, it was just extremely scary. it seemed like it was best to go get shelter. holy crap! look how big it is. >> reporter: that same dexter tornado greeted these workers, this storm pelted parts of ann arbor with golf ball-sized hail. dexter from the air, reveals roofs and second stories ripped off homes. some were completely eliminated. sirens were blaring. there was plenty of warning. but for this mother, it still all happened so quickly. >> we shut the door and prayed and held hands. we kept calling our husbands and telling them not to come home.
7:04am
>> reporter: in some case there wasn't much left to come home to. this father insisted his daughter shelter in the bathroom. she says there wasn't much time to think, you just do. >> you don't have enough time to pray or kiss yourself good-bye. you sit there and wait and hope you're going to be there at the end. >> reporter: imagine this. that car was in a garage. that was attached to a house. now there is nothing left. it is amazing when you see images like that, or the video that we showed that no one was killed or seriously injured. this was my home state, michigan. though i am not happy to come back for something like this. i am happy that nothing that tragic has occurred. ef-2 rating is what they'll likely give this tornado. they'll know later today. max wins 130 miles per hour
7:05am
robin. >> ginger, thank you. >> let's get to sam. such a surprising sight. so many. >> in april, may, we could say tornadoes in michigan, fine, to be expected. in early march? this heat is fueling it. this is the map that everyone in the country is talking about. take a look at this. 2,000 record-high temperatures since the first of march. i never thought this was possible. that heat fuels the storms. the early warning and these people taking cover likely saved their lives. what you'll notice from these storm, this he will be less powerful than the storms in illinois, and also into kentucky and missouri that we're talking about just a few weeks ago. this will probably be an ef-2 storm. we have 200 storm reports out of that. three tornadoes in michigan. george, just a wild day, yesterday. >> sure is. thanks, sam. >> we'll turn to the american soldier that went on that rampage, killing innocent civilians in afghanistan. he's hired a civilian lawyer. on his way back to the states. we're learning more about why he may have snapped. abc's martha raddatz is here on that. martha, investigators saying, he
7:06am
was under tremendous stress and alcohol may have been involved too. >> reporter: john henry brown is the lawyer. it's clear post traumatic stress could be part of the defense. he said the he was injured twice. one that we have previously reported, a concussion that caused a mild brain injury from the rollover of his vehicle in iraq and a serious injury to his foot during another deployment resulting in the removal of part of it. after three deployments to iraq, the soldier did not want to go to afghanistan and was originally told he did not have to. he said the night before the shooting spree, the soldier saw a friend who had his leg blown off, which he said was very trauma tiegz. >> i'll bet it was. martha, they first brought the soldier to kuwait, created a little bit of an uproar there, but now he'll come to the states for proceedings. >> reporter: probably ft. leavenworth. that could be as early as today. we'll learn his name when he's charged.
7:07am
we don't know exactly when that will happen. it could happen today, but possibly next week. >> do we have any sense of the scope of the chars here and what the potential penalty will be? >> reporter: i think we'll certainly see multiple murder charges, and they will possibly carry a death penalty. the lawyer talked about that too. the lawyer also said, he didn't think there were marital difficulties. he knows nothing about drinking but investigators do say that's what they think happened. >> okay. martha, thanks very much. josh is off today. bianna golodryga is here with the rest of the top stories. >> good morning, everyone. we're getting in dramatic images of a fiery plane crash in north carolina. five people were killed while trying to land at this municipal airport. the wing apparently struck the ground causing the plane to flip and burst into flames. a horrifying accident at a texas carnival was caught on camera. a young girl alone on a ride was sent catapulting through the air. this morning, she's okay. but the question now is, who's
7:08am
to blame. and a warning for you at home, you may find this hard to watch. cameras were rolling when the 3-year-old started to slip. both her legs now on the same side of the lap restraint. then the ride comes around again, picking up speed. her legs fly in the air as she's thrown eight feet to the platform below. >> should the operator have been more aware? >> i'm going to tell you again, i can't say that. >> reporter: at first, they claimed she climbed out on her own. this video proves otherwise. now officials say she was too young to ride without an adult. >> it was a 3-year-old without an adult. we said, she came under the bar and the lap restraint. >> reporter: the girl did meet the ride's height restriction. that restriction is now being changed. >> we're telling the operator on the ride, if it's someone between 42 and 48 inches tall, make sure the other person is an adult. >> a terrifying video to watch.
7:09am
now the 3-year-old girl suffered a concussion, but is recovering well this morning. in the wake of this near tragedy, one texas lawmaker is now renewing his call for tighter regulation of carnival rides. we're going to turn now to the economy. gas prices are up again this morning. rising another penny to the national average of $3.83 per gallon. oil prices are on the rise as well, after british and u.s. officials denied reports they were planning to tap into strategic oil reserves. and some breaking news overseas this morning. north korea has announced plans to launch a satellite into space. on the back of a long-range rocket. the u.s. state department calls the plan, quote, highly provocative, since north carolina is not allowed to use ballistic missile technology. and finally, this is taking daredevil to a new height. aus tree unaustrian felix baumgartner took a
7:10am
jump from 13 miles up. he was in free fall for four minutes before pulling the cord. landing in a field near roswell, new mexico. >> of course. >> of all places, roswell. >> they're back. >> this was just a dress rehearsal for the jump he's planning this summer. when he says he's going to leap from the ledge of space more than 20 miles above earth. when asked why he keeps taking such risks he said i just like to challenge myself. >> 4 minutes? >> 4 minute, yes. >> so many other ways to challenge yourself. >> like putting heels on when you're nine months pregnant. >> are you going to have that baby here? >> i'm planning on it. any minute. >> we're all watching for signs. >> thanks, bianna. now to the verdict in the so-called day care murder trial in georgia. hemy neuman found guilty for gunning down his romantic rival. after claiming that spirits in the form of olivia newton john and barry white inspired him to kill. andrea canning has all the details for us. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, robin.
7:11am
the prosecution fought hard to prove hemy neuman was guilty. that he was a calculated killer and not insane when he shot rusty schneiderman. the injury did find he was mentally ill at the time of the crime. he'll spend life in prison without parole, not in a mental health facility as the defense had hoped. >> the jury reach the verdict? as hemy sat frozen, the jury forewoman's voice broke. as she read the verdict. >> count one, we, the jury, find the defendant as to count one guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. but mentally ill. >> reporter: neuman closed his eyes. he had hoped for not guilty by reason of insanity, claiming an angel with the voice of olivia newton-john ordered him to kill rusty sneiderman, the husband of the woman he was in love with. before sentencing, neuman read a statement, fighting back tears, apologizing to the schneidermans and his own family.
7:12am
have. >> i am so, so, so sorry. >> reporter: rusty's brother, steve, addressed the court, while his family wept. >> today, the pain is almost unbearable. we look to this court to provide us with some small measure of comfort, knowing that this man, lawfully convicted of killing rusty schneiderman, will never walk among us again. >> reporter: the prosecution claimed andrea sneiderman a co-conspirator in all of this. the defense said she drove neuman to insanity. he claimed angels and demons told him his children were his own and he needed to protect them from rusty. the prosecution called him a fake. even his own wife broke her silence on thursday to "the atlanta journal-constitution." saying he's not crazy, he's a faker. he did something so bad, he has to pay for it. i have no mercy, not for him. even after the verdict was read the defense continued to place blame on andrea schneiderman. >> she knew how she wanted her husband murdered. and she manipulated hemy to have that done.
7:13am
>> reporter: the jury did believe he was mentally ill. neuman will now receive mental health stream in prison. the judge had these final words. >> you indicated today you were sorry for the tragedy. at least based upon the finding of the jury and everything i've heard, this situation was brought about by your hands. >> reporter: andrea sneiderman has been vilified throughout the trial. but never charged. her attorney released a statement saying in part, andrew is grateful for and relieved by the jury's guilty verdict and the sentence. nothing can bring back her husband. it's reassuring to her that after the noise and distraction, surrounding this case, some measure of justice has been done. we mentioned this before, there's some chatter that she could still face problems with this. >> we're going to talk about that. thank you. because joining us now from los angeles is nancy grace, the host of hln's "nancy grace."
7:14am
let's pick up on that statement. that we just heard. there has been no evidence that she had anything to do with the planning of the crime, but the d.a. has said, as far as possible chances against her, the d.a. said, nancy, stay tuned. what do you think? >> i think it's powerful that in the closing argument, they refer to her as a co-conspirator. at this juncture, she has not been charged. i think a lot of it hinges on phone records. there were about 1,500 phone calls and texts between the two. i'm talking about the convicted killer and the victim's wife. leading up to the murder. this is what concerns me. when she called the victim's family, immediately after the shooting, she says, he's been shot. rusty's been shot. but she told the jury, under oath, she did not know he had been shot until she got to the emergency room. now she called the family en route.
7:15am
i would like to point out, she stopped at her home before she goes to find out about her husband. not only that, apparently disallowed police to come and search her home. i find that very disturbing. but the main thing is this, robin. how did she know he was shot? now, i looked at the phone records. it looked as if she and the killer tried to talk that morning immediately after the shooting. there were calls. it looked like they never spoke. did she know the night before her husband was to be shot? i think it's very, very powerful evidence. >> yeah that's why the d.a. is staying, stay tuned. let me ask you something. a lot of people have heard not guilty by reason of insanity. but in this case, weigh found guilty, but mentally ill. it's extremely different, the two. >> it really is. they had four choices, the jury, not guilty, guilty, guilty but mentally ill, not guilty by
7:16am
reason of insanity. guilty but mentally ill means you're going to jail. he's headed to jackson diagnostic, where every convicted felon in georgia goes. then he will likely go to the augusta prison for the mentally ill and insane. he will be treated like every other inmate, except he will get some mental treatment. he got life without the possibility of parole. he will not get out. if he had gotten not guilty by reason of insanity, he would have gone for evaluation for 30 days. and then he could have gotten out after 30 days. >> you see an opening for an appeal? >> there's always openings for appeal. no matter what. even when there's a confession, there's going to be an appeal. i know three of the players here. greg adams. west point. former prosecutor judge, did a great job. bob rubens.
7:17am
don garrett, i don't think there's going to be an appeal. >> nancy, always good to have you with us. we appreciate it so much, have a good weekend. thank you, nancy. >> we'll have much more on this case tonight on "20/20" at 10:00, 9:00 central here on abc. let's get back over to sam. >> hey, good morning, robin. we head into another day today on this friday of record-setting temperatures all of the way up to extreme boarders here. minneapolis, look at that 76 number. that will be a record. 5 of the last 7 days have been record-setting temperatures up there. chicagoland, just below 80. but that's a big difference from the last two days. you come back to 80 degrees, we think tomorrow so the storms not over. the storms will roll in the areas shaded in red. from oklahoma city to del rio, texas.
7:18am
>> west has a rainy weekend ahead. we'll talk about that in the next half hour.
7:19am
>> happy friday. >> happy friday. we're going to turn to a secret revealed about the pope. benedict xvi has reached out to the woman who made custom perfumes for madonna and sting so he could have his own personal scent too. abc's dan harris set out to recreate it right here in new york. >> reporter: he has tailor-made cherry red shoes, fur-lined robes. and now he's reportedly commissioned his own cologne. he's said to have tapped silvana cosoli, known in italy as the nose. she says the pope's new scent is protected by a, quote, pact of secrecy. but she did reveal that the cologne, for the man who largely enough was bunch the archbishop of cologne, germany, was inspired by the pope's love of nature. it uses limewood to verbena to grass. that's spot on.
7:20am
the grass. i mean the legal grass. >> we went to a lab where they mix together dozens of individual notes to create fragrances which they then test by smelling this woman's arm. this is the first time i have ever smelled a stranger's arm. but here we go. >> if you were making something for the pope, what would be the no-go zone? >> sex. >> reporter: while this story has been a boon to headline writer, the term heaven scent is used a lot it is not necessarily great for the pope. even some celebrities have hit sour notes in this business with inadvertently ironic names. however, the pope's cologne will not be for sale. the only way to get a whiff is if you're one of the lucky few who gets close enough to kiss the ring. for "good morning america," dan harris, abc news, new york. >> so we know the pope's no-go. >> we got that loud and clear, george. coming up, a dramatic day in court for the polo tycoon on trial. why jurors inspected his bentley convertible with their
7:21am

7:32am
guy john goodman, who adopts his girlfriend as his daughter to protect the family fortune. but what the prosecution has been trying to remind the jury over the past couple of days is why this is really important. the impact was so powerful, it instantly compressed scott wilson's car. the images so visceral to his mother, lily. the jurors on this trial were given a brief tour of wilson's hyundai and goodman's 200,000 bentley convertible. a car weighing twice as much as wilson's. facing 30 years for dui manslaughter, goodman is accused of partying, driving drunk, running a stop sign and slamming wilson's car into a canal as demonstrated on this police demonstration wednesday. >> there was no indications at all of braking on the bentley.

7:35am
trapped inside of the car, a father and his two young sons. >> my car blew up with two kids. i've got two significant leg injuries that are chewed up pretty good. they are bleeding, i need someone here now. >> reporter: eric chappell, who was driving his kids to football practice, described the family's panic inside the inferno. >> it was mayhem. we were all dazed. and screaming. i had noticed that there were flames that were coming up on both my side and then the side, the passenger side. >> reporter: amazingly, all three survived. but with serious injuries. >> the boys had significant lower leg injuries and lower areas. myself, it was limited to injuries on my right arm and i had some facial injuries as well. >> reporter: they're all expected to make full recoveries. the authorities believe that chappell, an ohio lawyer known for handling messy divorce cases, was the target. chillingly, the bomber was
7:36am
willing to kill his innocent children. police now say the car bomb that reduced the family volvo to this, was constructed using parts from toy cars with a remote control detonator. >> it would require some proximity in order to detonate it, and if they were within any proximity, they would have had to have known that the boys were in this car. >> reporter: no arrests have been made in the case. chappell has gone back to work, now all too aware of the risks that come along with litigation. >> it's fairly disconcerting that as a result of doing your job, we would end up in this situation. that we have been in in the last six months. >> reporter: they suffered very serious injuries. but again, they're all expected to make full recoveries. meanwhile the atf uped the reward money, now offering $20,000 to anyone leading to the arrest.
